Bilingual education

Bilingual education

The Visserschool teaches at least 30 % and no more than 50% of the classes in English. All other classes are in Dutch. We are the only primary school in Amsterdam to offer this kind of bilingual education. Regular lessons like Geography and History are taught in English. It's not quite the same as a regular English lesson!
 
We launched bilingual education on August 18 2014. We then started the process of introducing it step-by-step. In other words, we didn't start teaching part of our classes in English all of a sudden. Parents enrolling their children at the Visserschool know about bilingual education and purposely choose the school because of it.
